Sorry, no etymologies found.
Laboratory studies were remarkable for a hemoglobin of 17.1 gm./dl. and a white blood cell count of 33,600 109/L with 31 percent neutrophils, 11 percent immature neutrophils, 41percent metamyelocytes, 2 percent myelocytes and 15 percent lymphocytes.
On the fourth day of culture, these cells gave rise to myelocytes containing specific, or secondary, granules . . . indicating the development of fully mature granulocytes.
These marrow cells proper, or myelocytes, resemble in appearance lymphoid corpuscles, and like them are ameboid; they generally have a hyaline protoplasm, though some show granules either oxyphil or basophil in reaction.
5: 1 The majority of the cells are neutrophils, metamyelocytes, and myelocytes.
